The Fingertips Q&A was launched in August 2008 with the express intent of allowing actual, working musicians the chance to talk about the state of the music industry in the digital age. This is not intended as a comprehensive discussion; each time I ask five (relatively) simple questions, all having something to do with making sense of what popular music in the 21st century is about. When someone does in fact make sense of it, I’ll let you know.

The Q&A began as a monthly feature but now appears on a more meandering schedule, arriving whenever a musician comes along who feels like giving it a go. The Q&A features musicians whose work has already been featured on Fingertips.
